September and October are Mental Health Months! And on October 2nd, we’ll be climbing Tokyo Tower, with our pals and our cameras, in the spirit of goodwill! Our goal will be to use our passion for photography to raise awareness about the importance of mental well-being, to destigmatize mental illness, and to acknowledge of the number lives lost to suicide in Japan last year. We’ll be fundraising support for organizations committed to these issues, including TELL – Tokyo English Life Line!
